The abaya is getting a stylish redefinition and local designer Huda N, a graduate of both the London College of Fashion in the UK and Esmod French Fashion University in Dubai, is the woman who’s making it happen. Huda’s high-end abaya label MALAAK, created in 2010, now has its own studio at Jumeirah. It’s where Huda will unveil her latest A/W 2011 abaya collection, which is all about ancient royalty meeting 21st century fashion. Think luscious, deep-toned fabrics that are a fusion of the past and present.
Adorning the gorgeous slim-line abayas are striking embellishments and accentuated shoulders that bring out a finely tailored look in each piece - definitely on our must-buy list! Even if you’re not an abaya-wearer, there’s something for you. Huda has also launched jackets for this season, and they’re just so want-worthy!
INFO: The 20-piece collection is available at MALAAK. Located at 304 Jumeirah Terrace, Jumeirah, Dubai, the studio is open from Monday to Saturday. For more information call 04 386 0570 or visit www.malaak.ae.
